Who is the best #7?

    My number in sports has always been 7, and many of my favorite players have also worn this number on their way to glory in Columbus and beyond.

    My question to you is: which Buckeye stands out to you as the ultimate #7?

    My current vote would be Gamble, b/c he had so many game deciding plays during the championship season (during his first half season ever playing DB). There were so many other key players (Krenzel was obviously more valuable) that contributed, but no one else on the team could have played as well as he did for 100+ plays a game.

    However, I'm a huge TG fan, and can't wait to see him prove me wrong about Gamble.

    He flat out won the 2002 Penn State game for us. Without him we don't play for and win the NC. But then the bastard bit on the out and up at Wisconsin and cost us a shot at repeating.

    He did sadly bite against Wisky, but I seem to remember him having a couple of other huge plays (didn't he have 2 or 3 huge picks that year as well?). Also, I love Fox, but I don't like his chances against Johnson all game long. Plus who can forget the undeniable speed of Gamble to silence all the critics who claimed Cryami was too fast for OSU?

    Sorry. Andre Johnson, pretty good WR for Miami that was hyped up big before the game and was shut down well all game. Dorsey had to throw to Winslow instead.

    OK. So you meant didn't like Fox's chances. Gotcha.

    Back to the topic, Germaine and Gamble have to be up there. Hopefully we can add another Great G to that list as Ginn continues his career.

    No one will say Duane Crooks, that's for sure.

    As #7's go, I'll vote Gamble as well... I think Corny Green's name will surface on this thread too..

    Galloway has to be the fastest #7 of all time, and would have been even more memorable had he not been under Boston's shadow.

    Germaine is the most overrated QB in recent OSU history. Choked at least one game every year. The Anti-Krenzel.

    Fox wasn't on Johnson...Gamble was. By the way, Johnson was getting open early so we slid a safety over to help out Gamble.

    Unless something changes Ted Ginn will become the benchmark by which all future #7s are measured.

    I meant I was glad Gamble was on Johnson. Didn't realize the safety had to move over. Either way, they got the job done.

    Ginn sure seems to have the sheer explosiveness, but only time will tell if he can stay healthy and grow into his role as the future of OSU's passing offense/defense.
